Wyoming Property Tax

  • The Ad Valorem Tax Division of the Department of Revenue in Wyoming is responsible for the support, training and guidance of local government agencies for carrying out a uniform assessment, valuation and taxation of property throughout the state.
  • Any residence or additional structures are taxed with land included. Furniture or home furnishings which are not part of a furnished rented property are exempt from property tax.
  • Property tax is levied on the “assessable value”. Furthermore, Wyoming is known as a “fractional assessment” state where tax is applicable to only a fraction of the property value.  In general, the percentage of property which is subject to tax is 9.5%. By way of example, if the net worth of a property is $100,000, the value subject to tax will only be $9,500 of the total value.
  • There is a limit placed on increases in property tax by statutes. In the case of counties, the rate of property tax cannot be increased over 1.2% of the assessable value. With cities and towns, the limit is fixed at 0.8%.  The property tax rate for most governmental purposes is limited by state law.
  • There are several exemptions such as property for personal use, pollution control, education, religious purposes and so on.
  • There are several property tax relief programs and partial exemptions for certain categories of taxpayers such as veterans and senior citizens.
